    1948 Buick Special Eight --$8800

    WAY too much drama on this site. Car is listed FOR SALE , not " tell me boring stories, stupid comments welcome, can't afford it, wife won't let me buy it, boyfriend won't let me buy it, it's not as desirable as other cars that look better, if it ran you could drive it, the engine is not a flathead, the car has been for sale for a while" section, and way too many other- "hey, read my comment 'cuz I am an idiot" - replies for anyone to have to deal with. People , buy it or don't

    I get that question more than the "price history" question. Some people are more interested in the mechanicals of the car than what it has been priced at recently. Even though the picture OBVIOUSLY shows a ohv head , the "flathead" question is still asked frequently by the less educated in mechanics of internal combustion engines. As far as "price history" --I am quite sure I have it priced far above what the retail price was in 1948, excluding the sunvisor option. So , it is still for sale for those with a serious interest and have the permission and cash in pocket to buy. .........so I will wait for the next idiotic response.................

    Imperial62, that is correct -- U need to understand that when things are available for sale , people and businesses tend to advertise those items. U can see this almost everywhere --newspaper classifieds, online ads, television and radio ads, billboards, local bulletin boards. Then when it does sell, THEN the advertiser will no longer post it for sale. U see, if the item has not sold--the advertiser will CONTINUE to advertise the item.

    model B Mack truck

    My dad has a complete running truck --a early 1960's if that helps u out ? Diesel, 5 & 2 trans. Wrecker body . Located in Iowa.
  5. Complete, solid ,original & unrestored car. 4 door. Straight Eightohv -not a flathead, manual 3 spd. Located in eastern Iowa, just a bit north of Interstate 80. Good title. No restoration started and no parts sold off this car. Glass is all there, interior has wear & tear. One of the tail light lens is broken. Stainless trim is all there. Was running, driving, stopping, shifting a few years ago and then I put it back inside for storage. The radiator had a very small leak --I removed it to have the local radiator shop repair it , told them "no hurry" , but after sitting there for several months I took it back and have it in the trunk of the car. It should be a easy fix. The engine ran great. I am sure the battery will need to be replace and some fresh gas to get it running again. I put some sta-bil in the gas tank so that should be good...? Anyway , it's is a very solid original car. Delivery possible.
